Handheld console to play Amiga games

I am going to buy a handheld console to play Amiga games but which one should I get or should I say which one is the best, it has to be at least a 3.5" screen and no bigger than 7"

I thought the same but decieded on getting a net book. 10" screen so its very portable and of course...... runs WINUAE perfectly :-)

Windows on a netbook running WINUAE is the perfect portable platform

I'm pretty far back in the pre-order queue and so far I've not had the spare cash to upgrade to a "get it in 7 days" order
still... I think I'm gonna be over the moon with it when I finally get it!

Don't expect AGA emulation in these kind of machines. These emulators are most of them A500 emulators.

Well a CAANOO version has appeared, A500 only:

But it plays many OCS & ECS games nicely. I stop short at saying perfect, but it's pretty nice. Shame the development has stopped on it. THE most annoying this with the emulation scene on these handhelds. Everyone jumps on the bandwagon as they're released, soon moving to something else.
